Bure Out of Action




GREENSBORO, North Carolina -- Pavel Bure, who scored eight goals in his first six games with the Florida Panthers will miss at least one week because of a slight muscle strain to his right knee, Panthers coach Terry Murray said Saturday.


Bure did not dress for Saturday's key NHL game with the Carolina Hurricanes and could miss at least three games next week after an MRI procedure in Florida revealed the injury.


Murray said Bure's injury is to the same knee that required reconstruction surgery during the 1995-96 season, forcing him to miss the final 67 games. However, Murray said this injury is not related. Bure will be replaced in the lineup by Alex Hicks, who has no goals in 25 games.
